Restore to original factory setting


Your computer may have a recovery partition set. Try pressing the Alt & F10 keys during the boot process (during the initial Pre windows black screen stage of the startup process) to obtain the "Boot Menu" and then select "Recovery" (Or similar wording) at the prompt. IMPORTANT: You should be aware that, if you select recovery either from a boot partition or from a recovery CD, that you may lose ALL data on your hard drive during the recovery process. If you are unsure what to do and you have important data on your hard drive that you don't want to lose, then I'd suggest you get a qualified technician to recover your system - if you advise that you have data, they will always try and rescue your stuff before repairing your OS.

Boot mgr is missing


If your trying to restore the computer to factory fresh out of box you can use the ALT F10 or F12 method that will reinstall from the hard drive recovery partition. I'm not sure of what Vista recovery disk you created is exactly - to boot to windows or is it to reinstall everything?
If you have not been able to load to windows and had available Mfr recovery discs that you are trying to use and they won't work then most likely your hard drive has gone bad. If you try the ALT F10 or F12 method with the same results then I am very sure the hard drive has gone bad.

If you are talking about problem with your password

You need to prepare:
1:A blank CD/DVD or USB flash drive
2.A computer which can link to internet
3.A program called Windows Password Recovery 6.0

Get started with this 3 simple steps:

Step 1 - Download windows password recovery utility and install it.
Step 2 -Burn your Windows Password Reset CD:
To burn your CD, you'll need a blank CD-R and the .ISO file of Windows Password Reset.
Step 3 - Put in your newly created CD and remove your Windows password.

How to restore fatory settings without the cd acer aspire 5740g windows 7 home premium windows is not booting n auto recovery that is alt+f10 is also not working but the recovery partition still exist


For all Acer Netbooks try to initiate the recovery using Altgr key (righthand side of the space bar) and F10, ie Altgr+F10 as soon as the computer restarts. If the recovery partion is corrupted or do not have the CD. Try the below steps:
No Restore CD / eRecovery / password / ALT + F10 or F10
1 - Recovery of data on the hidden partition PQSERVICE for password
A - Installing the software R-Drive Image to create an image of this partition (this file has the extension. ARC)
B - Always with this software, create a virtual disk logic to see the files
C - From the desktop, go to the newly created virtual disk and find the file aimdrs.dat. The open with the notepad and get the password.
2 - Reactivating the ALT + F10
A - Always on the virtual disk created, find 2 files: mbrwrwin.exe and rtmbr.bin.
B - Copy these 2 files on drive C: \
C - Since the MS-DOS (Pocket PC) to C: \, type the following command: mbrwrwin install rtmbr.bin
D - The function has been reactivated.
3 - Start of Restoration
A - At the start of the PC, go to the set-up to check if the function is well on D2D enabled (normally it is a default setting ... but hey you never know.)
B - Once the audit and that the PC has restarted once the ACER logo appears, simultaneously press ALT + F10 to start the restore utility.
C - When it asks for the password, you need to type one found in the file aimdrs.dat. CAUTION: The keyboard is QWERTY mode so we thought enter his password, but as some letters are reversed, it does not work.
4 - Normally at this stage there ... everything works and restoration is smooth.
Note: If the operating system does not work, it is possible to do this from another PC by connecting the hard drive or USB slave
i found this helped me with exactly the same problem you have on the 7540g aspire laptop use the ALTGR on the right hand side of keyboard not the ALT on the left hand side of the keyboard along with F10 i tried it with just the ALT on the left side nothing happened but when used ALTGR on right side it woeked and reset everything back to factory settings then went to acer site and downloaded missing drivers hope this helps you out

How do i reboot my cpu to factory settings, programs ect..?


You can either use your recovery discs that came with the computer and re-boot the computer with the disc in the drive. The computer should ask you to"press any key to boot from cd" when re-booted. If it does not you will need to go into the BIOS and change the first boot device to the cd-rom drive. Or if your computer did not come with any recovery discs you can use the recovery program if it is built into the hard disc drive. You can usually activate this by pressing "alt" then "f10" when the computer first starts up. Sometimes the computer will tell you what to press to enter recovery mode when it first boots up.

Replacing with harddrive 40GB


Did you simply swap hard drives? "Couldn't find NTLDR" basically means the PC cannot find any version of Windows installed because the boot file is missing. This could be because you have a CD in the drive or the hard drive is missing or broken.


If you put in a new hard drive to replace your older smaller one you need to reinstall Windows on that new 40GB drive or it just won't work. If you have some PC Tech friends they should be able to move the data which is tricky or help you out.

Wont restart my compuetr


if your computer has restore capabilites then you need to enter the bios and make sure that D2D recovery is enabled. Do this by pressing F2 on boot.

Then you need to press Alt and F10 not just F10 to enter the recovery console. But press it once the manufacturers screen appears such as tiny, gateway, Hp etc.....

If this does not work for you then make sure that CDrom is set as first priority in the bios boot options if you are attempting to Repair windows with the disk.

I hope this helps
